One Minute Activist: Restore Funding that Supports Family Farms!

farmer-for-sale-signNo Farms No Food!  Click HERE  to tell your representatives in Washington to support reauthorization of and full funding of the Land and Water Conservation Fund.

From the link:
On September 30th, Congress let the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) expire and with it a 50 year promise to the American public that a small portion of revenues from offshore oil and gas drilling will be set aside to protect some of our nations most treasured and important lands including family farm and ranch lands.

I’m calling on you to reauthorize the LWCF. Supporting reauthorization and full funding of the Land and Water Conservation Fund will:
1.) Provide critical funding for land and water conservation projects nationwide.

2.) Make Congress keep their word to protect America’s most treasured and important lands, including family farm and ranch lands.

3.) Increase voluntary conservation easements that help keep farmland in production, benefiting our community, local wildlife and environment.

We must do everything we can to protect our nation’s most productive family farms.
